Remote Working Question on LinkedIn Answers

logo.gifAs a member of LinkedIn for a while now, I've been impressed with how that service has been adding value and making their service better and better.

I've been especially intrigued by the new LinkedIn Answers feature, where members can ask questions of their connections and see answers listed on a dedicated page.

My friend and fellow Milwaukee blogger Phil Gerbyshak asked an interesting question about the best questions to ask to know someone better and got 70 replies as of this writing. Wow! I thought I'd give this new feature a shot myself.

My LinkedIn Question
Being a happy remote worker for 8+ years, I wanted to get some good ideas for improving how I work and sharing these ideas with others, so I asked this question:

If you work remotely, or from a home office, what are your best tips and suggestions for keeping on track and sustaining your passion for work and productivity?

I love remote working, but I'm quite sure I don't know everything! I'm sure I can improve how I work, so it makes sense to seek the knowledge and wisdom of others. If you are a remote or home worker and wish to reply, the question will remain active for 7 days, so don't wait too long. :-)

If you are a former remote worker, or are a more traditional worker with ideas to share, I'd love to hear your answers at my LinkedIn Answers page.
